This BBQ pork bun almost made me cry!!!

Expectation was high when I noticed this bun on sale! Unfortunately, this pathetic creation from 'Richmond Court', with may be the world's stingiest filling, almost made me cry when I cut it open in half!!

Made famous by a number of Michelin rated restaurants in Hong Kong, the original ' Pineapple BBQ Pork ( aka char siu ) Bun was supposed to be light and fluffy with filling oozing with BBQ pork smothered with sweet honey infused oyster sauce. So good, foodies were actually calling it 'Number1 bun under the sky'!!!

I was totally lost for words with thisToronto clone!! The bun itself actually tasted fairly decent, but for $1.20 a mini-size bun, I was hoping for at least a bit of stuffing!!
